    No one took a picture but I bet my wife and I felt the same as the couple in this picture the day I shipped out.

    I always thought the nose of a 54 Buick like the one to the far right in this picture looked like it was customized from the factory--class all the way!!

    I would say 57 Fords might be more rare as they started rusting away in the show rooms:p

    Well as one who has owned and raced a lot of Chevys, I think the '57 Chevy was the most unattractive car of all of the '57 offerings. All the other '57 GM offerings were a lot better looking as was the entire Chrysler brands, and yes even Fords which except for the Lincolns, I do not care for mechanically. I know those of you who worship at the altar of the '57 Chevy will vehemently disagree. I think the 55's and '56's are superior looking cars to the '57's. Slapping that panel of stainless on the rear fenders of the '57's was just a stylist's idea of a cheap way to facelift the car from the previous 2 years. Flame away!

    And whenever I hear it I wonder why so many more 57 Chevies survived compared to Frods ?

    THAT JACK WEBB PHOTO SAYS a lot…” “JUST THE FACTS, MA’AM…”

    Hello,

    This photo postcard is from Solvang, California. In those early So Cal travel trips with and without the family, Solvang was a stopover just because it is so quaint and directly on the highway leading north or south from our relatives in Santa Barbara. It was a different outlook on the standard tourist hot spot. But, it was a nice stop for a quick rest and some tasty food. Yes, it is a big “touristy” area and the weekends are packed with visitors. But, it still remains a destination place.

    In the early photo-shoot vacation days, the back road from Santa Barbara, through the mountains and the lake gave a different look to the long driving vacation. Instead of a 4 lane freeway, it was a quiet, scenic, highway for pure driving enjoyment. Solvang and this approach from Santa Barbara was frequently used by the local hot rod individuals/groups, around the whole coastal area, for rod runs and car shows. Anderson’s Split Pea Soup Restaurant is on the major 101 freeway, a short distance West.

    What is it that provides people with the satisfaction of going to Solvang? It looks like a Scandinavian village. There is a huge, red, wooden clog for photo ops, terrific restaurants, unusual pastries, and crazy things, like a balancing rock in the neighborhood city block, just around the corner from the posted city center photo. Of course, the scenery is certainly different than most towns and cities.

    We frequented this village, as my wife’s parents purchased a home with acreage just a short drive south in Santa Ynez. Despite the Turkey and fixings, it took 6 minutes to get to the heart of Solvang for some tasty Danish pastries and stuff. One of the first discount, outlet stores was located here, well before the famed outlet malls began popping up all over the place. The whole, wide, valley area is dotted with horse ranches, acreages, and secluded ranch style homes.

    The locale is just different, away from the hustle and bustle of a typical So Cal destination, despite the tourist scene. This whole area was a great, scenic hot rod/cruiser style route and countryside for the cool So Cal drives and destinations.
